she is an expert in pourencic science, she does all the latest, greatest technology for solving crimes using science and medicine, but she is also a little bit of a sherlock. she has great deductive abilities, a woman's intuition. she is a wonderful italian cook. and she's married to an fbi profiler so scarpetta uses her mind really to solve cases that are almost impossible for everybody else. >> and what accounts for her longevity, for the fact people remain so intrigued by this character? >> i think people just really like her. she is a likeable person. i mean, she -- if you met her at a party you might be afraid of her. if you started talking to her, she would be accessible and interested in you. she is kind but she is a force to be reckoned with. she is who you want to call if something really bad happens. >> i might be afraid of her at first? >> i know because i write about her, she is so smart and i think even i would be a little intimidated because, god, this is like some genius. and she's really reserved. she is a reserved person. she has a very dry sense of humor. i know we're

different. let's go to tuesday, the day when all the technology and all the polls and everything that, you know, anyone like us says goes out the window and people actually vote. and then it becomes a turnout election. so give us your sense of a turnout election when the two variables are the president's people trying to get their vote out the way they did four years ago, women, minorities, suburban women, and maybe not be able to reach the number they reach four years ago. and governor romney's side clearly dependent on white male to come out and vote. give me your sense of the turnout election, the difficulties in both sides getting their side out. >> well, i think republicans are historically better voters, they tend to show with more frequency, more reliable. my parents were classics, voted all the time in every primary, went to church every sunday all the time. very regular, democrats are more driven by excitement and phenomenon. they have to be turned on to vote. and that's a problem. how many times can you be turned on to the same candidate? so that's going to be a questio

on the ground in these swing states. it is a really technologically sophisticated architecture for turning voters out. and one thing we're about to see is whose architecture is better. they have not led in an ohio poll in quite a while. they have not led in any of these nbc swing state polls, there are 32 of them according to twitter this morning. if their turnout model's better than obama's which seems unlikely from what i've heard, but if it is, that could change things. otherwise it's hard to see campaigning or another ad is going to do. people have heard it all by now. >> chuck, it's donny. obviously, we're all living through sandy. >> reporter: yes. >> you're in iowa or a wisconsin or an ohio swing voter, how does it play? >> reporter: you know, i think -- i'm guessing yesterday, seeing a roep aepublican and det working together. when you look at what i think has been a very effective closing message up until sandy happened, which was he was simply going to the -- wherever he was going, sometimes it was base counties that he was going to, but his messaging was all aimed at sub

what they can get by with. and you've also had this technological improvement. so you've got retailers now using weather software to tell them, maybe this is a bad week to talk about this, but to tell them, you know, when they should really staff up almost to the hour so they don't have to plan, you know, they can plan it much -- they need fewer people basically. that is one example. but i mean the productivity has really had an impact. >> brian sullivan? >> my take is, i don't know if it's better or worse or just whatever. there are two economies right now. the unemployment rate for people that are over 25 that have a four-year college degree is just 3.8%. it went down from 4.1% to 3.8%. that's basically full employment. we have two economies in america right now. if you've got a four-year college degree the numbers say you can probably get a job. it may not be the job you want but you'll probably be employed. if you own a home you refi you have more money. right? the stock market is up because the fed is basically throwing all this money into it. so if you've got money and
